That's nothing !  I was today in an e-mail conversation with one of my 
colleagues at Meteo France, who assured me that they still have to deal 
with compilers that do not implement TR 15581.

It's my opinion that a Technical Report, written 12 years ago *and so 
popular*, should be implemented by every compiler writer by now.
